It's plain for all to see: A new zest for walking has gripped Europe. And what is especially pleasing is that this desire is experienced by people of all ages. It's not only athletic-minded adults, but many, many children run enthusiastically about our alpine meadows, learn about the nature of the alps in the Ötz valley, marvel at the chamois, ibexes, marmots and eagles and befriend the cows and horses in the meadows... the Hochoetz alpine region is the region for walks for all the family in the Ötz valley. Gentle slopes lead up over peaceful green meadows to mountain huts where there are not only good refreshments but many interesting things to see and do. There are easy forest paths that you can get to the Acherberg, Balbach and Kühtaile Alps (Almen) even with a pushchair (the path up to the Hochoetz Alps using the modern 8 seater cabin car is child's play. The panoramic restaurant is right next to the top station. Here you can just sit back and enjoy the tranquility of the mountains, while your children can enjoy themselves in the wigwam, and all this at very family-friendly prices.

Hiking and learning something about the wild animals at the same time. The loop road starts at WIDIVERSUM HOCHOETZ and offers you interesting knowledge and great fun. The path is a highlight for little explorers and scientists!
Somewhere along the trail 10 wild animals have lured over there. Anytime you spot one, you can find very interesting things about the inhabitants of the forest and the mountains on the info-panels .
